Saving the goldfish was a priority for Kristine Hooper on the
night Henley flooded, but she said coming home yesterday and
seeing her recently renovated 150-year-old cottage surrounded
by floodwater was cause for greater anxiety.
Avis rental sales agent Jolani Garner thought nothing of
kicking off her boots and pulling waders on over her uniform
yesterday to help push one of her cars out of floodwater at
Dunedin International Airport.
